vehicle jerks when slowing down to a stop.

Post by Minnesota_Nice » Tue Apr 16, 2019 1:53 pm

I have observed that my 06 FS started to jerk or do hiccups during slowing down to a stop, I had my transmission fluid replaced at the 120,000 miles mark at the dealer. It now has 132, 794 miles, did anybody had/has the same experience and what is the solution? Thank you!

If it turns out to be your rotors? don't waste you money on cheap crap from china spend the extra
cash and go for Motorcraft. I did mine a well worth it.

So, I just went to Quicklane and after a detailed conversation with the mechanic the recommendation is to bring it to the Ford service center where I had the 120,000 miles fluid change. It was not a "jerk motion" but rather, when I am slowing down to stop I feel the transmission downshift which it did not use to do. I apologize for describing the problem so poorly earlier; now, what could be the problem with the transmission?
